What's on offer for learners? (Peter Coolbear, DEANZ 2010)

Peter Coolbear, in his closing address to the conference, raised some key questions from the conference for the participants at the conference to go away and think about. He stressed that there is a need for system level adjustments that will shape and enable decision making. Some of the key questions were around generalisability.

Can we extrapolate from meeting the need of distance learners to meeting the needs of all learners? How can we level off work like that which has been presented at the conference to influence all of tertiary learning?

He closed with the phrase (from Scott Symonds) "lecturer re-creation application" as something to avoid at all odds .... Food for thought, and time for a cuppa!
